W. M. THACKERAY.

613. THE COMIC ALMANACK and Diary. Edited by
Henry Mayhew. With numerous fine etchings and colored
plates by George Cruikshank. Bound in 9 vols. 12mo, half
claret morocco, gilt tops. Lond. 1835-1853

* A FINE COMPLETE SET, WITH ALL THE ADVERTISEMENTS AND

COVERS BOUND IN. Thackeray's "Stubb's Calendar; or, The
Fatal Boots," appears in the 1839 number for the first' time,
and in the issue for 1840, his "Barber Cox, and the Cutting
of his Comb" was first published in any form.

614. THE YELLOWPLUSH CORRESPONDENCE. 12mo,
full maroon crushed levant morocco, Jansen style, gilt top, by
Walters. Phila. : Carey & Hart, 1838

* THE FIRST COLLECTED EDITION OF ANY OF THACKERAY 's
WRITINGS that appeared in England or America, and antedates
the second publication (Paris Sketch Book) by two years.
Every copy of this work commences with the title-page, then
a page with the caption, the reverse. of which is marked page
" 14. " The work is perfect, the space having been left for an
intended preface or introduction, which never appeared. Very
Scarce.

'515. THE LOVING BALLAD of Lord Bateman. With 12
illustrations by George CruiksJumk, including plate of Music.
Square 24mo, original limp green cloth, with gilt design by
Cruikshank, in green morocco slip-case, by Zaehnsdorf.

* FINE COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, in almost unspotted oon-
dition, with the page numbers (for the text) in the center, and
"wine" spelled correctly on p. 13. Printed on one side of
the leaf only. The text is now considered with reasonable
certainty to be by Thackeray, and the Preface and Notes by
Dickens.

516. THE CORSAIR. A Gazette of Literature, Art, Dra-
matic Criticism, Fashion and Novelty. From the beginning in
March, 1839, to March 7, 1840, inclusive, and Index. Edited

and small piece out of one leaf in No. 52, due to defect in
paper). N. Y. 1839-40

* Of great interest to the collector of Thackeray, as it con-
tains ' ' his first appearance before an American audience. ' '
In introducing him, Mr. Willis writes: "He will present a
long letter every week, and you will agree with me that he is
no common acquisition. ' ' The volume contains, in all, nine
articles by Thackeray. Hotten, the English publisher, dis-
covering these letters some time after Thackeray 's death, ' re-
published them under the title of ' ' The Student 's Quarter. ' '

'517. THE PARIS SKETCH-BOOK. By Mr. Titmarsh.
With numerous designs by the Author, on copper and wood.
2 vols. 8vo, full polished tree-calf, gilt backs and borders, gilt

* FINE COPY OF THE EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE FIBST EDITION,
WITH THE LEAF OF ADVERTISEMENT, and free from the usual
foxings. The front wrapper bears an etching of Napoleon lying
in state, by Thackeray, which has never been reprinted in any
of his works. Not only a rarity as a Thackeray first edition,
but lacking in most Napoleon collections. Thackeray had not
yet become famous at the time of writing this pamphlet. He
was in Paris when Napoleon 's body was brought there from
St. Helena, and although it is one of his finest pieces of de-
scriptive writing he realized nothing from its sale, and it be-
came lost to circulation immediately.

Lond.: David Bogue [1850]

* FIRST EDITION. The author was a young French artist, a
Revolutionary refugee, with whose family Thackeray had been
on friendly terms in Paris. Thackeray furnished the short
critical sketches of painters which accompany Marvy 's en-
gravings of their works. This copy has all of the plates in
colors, and is much more desirable than the copies in which
only a few are in that state.

a few pp. foxed). Lond.: Smith, Elder & Co., 1852

* THE SCARCE FIRST EDITION, claimed by many to be Thack-
eray's masterpiece, for which he did a vast amount of research
in eighteenth-century memoirs. The printing of it was de-
layed on account of the small amount of the obsolete type of
the Queen Anne period obtainable, and it was barely finished
in time for Thackeray to take with him to America, some copies
being delivered to him on the pier as he was sailing for his
first visit to this country.

WRITTEN HIS NAME OPPOSITE. His stamp is on the title-page and
the last blank leaves bear 7 original pencil sketches, probably
by Thackeray, and all of unusual merit, one undoubtedly being
